Biostimulants (Sculptra & Radiesse)
Biostimulants like Sculptra and Radiesse are composed of substances that help improve the body’s natural collagen production. Sculptra is a synthetic injectable filler made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It stimulates an increase in the production of collagen, which helps to replace lost volume in the face. Radiesse is made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite, a naturally occurring substance found in bones and teeth. Radiesse provides a scaffold-like base beneath the skin to promote collagen production and create a structural support that provides a base for tissue remodeling. Both treatments can provide long lasting and natural results for several years. Biostimulants are a great option for someone wanting natural volume replacement without the overdone pillow-face look!
